The introduction of laparoscopic removal of the gall bladder (Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy) in the late 1980s revolutionized the surgical management of many abdominal operations. It offered less discomfort to the patient and faster recovery. But it was only the delay in the development of proper instruments that prevented Colon and Rectal Surgeons from performing laparoscopic intestinal surgery until 1991.

Today, laparoscopic surgery is an increasingly popular option for people with intestinal conditions, who may need sections of the bowel repaired or removed. Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure in which the surgeons operate through very tiny holes (approximately 1/2-inch wide) instead of large incisions (8- to 12-inch wide). While recovery from open surgery for intestinal disease, takes an average of six weeks, people who have undergone laparoscopic surgery tend to feel back to normal in just three weeks.
